This is one of two bedrooms on the ground floor of a three-family house equipped with a queen-sized bed. It would be very private as the owners live two floors above. Quiet neighborhood.

The space

This is a bedroom in our 100 year old Victorian home in a remarkably quiet neighborhood. Long-term tenants just moved away. We're still acquiring furniture, but you will have a safe and comfortable place to stay. The bed is a comfy queen-sized bed. These homes were originally constructed as multi-family housing. There is sometimes a guest in the second bedroom. You would share the bathroom and kitchen. There is plenty of room to go around at 110 sq meters. This is a perfect location for someone traveling alone who will be busy with a conference or seminar. We get great feedback on the comfort of the mattress. We've slept on it and can assert that it's comfortable. Our location is very handy. We're a 6-7 minute walk from the subway (Central Square), a 5 minute walk to the bus on Mass Ave, a 5 minute walk to parts of MIT and a 15-20 minute walk to Harvard Square or to Boston in the other direction. We're also a 5 minute walk to Whole Foods or the same to Star Market in another direction. If you're a runner, there's a good 9-12k path from our house and around the river (we have a route map). For local cycling, a Hubway bike rental station is a 5 minute walk from the house. There is a driveway for your car also.

Guest access

We're still equipping this kitchen after the recent move of long-term tenants. The basics are there. If you need more, we're happy to loan from upstairs.

Interaction with guests

We're happy to share anything we know about sites to see, how to get places most easily, etc.

Other things to note

Please note check-in is 3pm though we are very happy to take bags early. Check-out is noon, and again, we're happy to store bags if you have later flights.

We have several restaurant recommendations, plus a few warnings of places not to go. There are four grocery stores in walking distance.

Paul User ProfilePaul is a superhost.

We are a pair of classical musicians in Cambridge, located between MIT & Harvard. As with much of Cambridge, we're hopeless lefties.

On parle un peu de français. Hablamos poco español. Und ein bisschen Deutsch auch.

Most Sundays you'll find us "making a joyful noise" at one church or another.
We've been in this old house and this neighborhood over 20 years now. Since we cook a bit, the rental floor fridge and pantry might contain a little overflow from ours. We're huge fans of Airbnb both as guests and as hosts. Leave your towels and sheets at home; we provide all that for you. Our biggest challenge as Airbnb hosts is saying goodbye to the awesome people who stay with us.
